Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of dancing and performing with students from Mason Gross School of the Arts and working professionals in NYC to create a fun yoga-inspired dance for the NYC Om Factory’s 2017 Summer Solstice party! Working with these incredible people that I get to spend everyday digging deep into the practice of yoga with was incredibly fun and rewarding. Seeing the amazing humans dressed as mermaid doing aerial silks and acro yoga next to little boys running around with eggs in hand a made me instinctively to tap into my inner child. Now on the tail end of my 200 hour vinyasa yoga teacher training, I am incredibly grateful for such a pure, joyful, and quirky experience. One might even say it was touched by Lakshmi herself. The Om Factory brought unadulterated happiness to my heart. More to come on the rest of my experiences here.
Om Na Ma Shivaya!
